Entertaining for what it is and the alpha male werewolves end up being a lot more fun than the brooding, moody vampires.

The brooding and sulking is so palpable in "New Moon," the latest film in the Twilight series, that you could probably cut it with a knife. If the filmmakers thought that this would be enough to carry a film for over two hours, they were sadly mistaken.

Ostensible heroine Bella is such a weak, needy, pathetic co-dependent who stirs up so much sh*t for those she purportedly loves that it's hard to muster much rooting interest for her.

So long as there are people, there will be love stories -- I hope they all feel as lush and lively as this one.

The net result is boredom unless you're already heavily invested in this series and bringing your own enthusiasm to the table.

Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, new director Chris Weitz has decided to be generally faithful to his source material despite the problems it's going to give him through a narrative that could delicately be described as 'sprawling.'

The Twilight Saga's New Moon is not terrible, despite featuring some excruciatingly lazy storytelling, atrocious performances, listless direction and a core storyline that is both uninteresting and somewhat disturbing.

...a marked improvement over its decidedly uneven predecessor...

Robert Pattinson and his stomach cramps - I mean, aching unrequited love - are less oppressive, but the trade off is Taylor Lautner and his relentless shirtlessness.

Poorly structured, poorly paced, poorly executed CGI in places and characters that are unlikeable, despite the fact that we should be rooting for them. An inaccessible mess.

For pity's sake, direct-to-video cheerleading competition films have more genuine intrigue than this.

New Moon is only after the affectation of emotion, of swoon-worthy poses and faux-momentous aesthetics.

My main problem with the Twilight series so far is that Bella doesn't have much in the way of admirable qualities. What's her distinction? She pines a lot.

I did find this film to be a little better than "Twilight" because of the romantic triangle aspect. That, and other plot developments add some complexity and suspense, making the film a bit more interesting.

New Moon was fully satisfying for the fans. I just happen to not be a fan.

Kristen Stewart does herself no favors by following her performance in Adventureland with this mope-a-palooza retread
